I have 5 years experience teaching high school mathematics - algebra 1 and geometry - in a classroom setting and held certification to teach mathematics in the State of Virginia from 2007 to 2012. I also have 1 year experience teaching high school chemistry. I have worked as a private tutor for almost 2 years, tutoring students in high school through college mathematics (pre-algebra to calculus) and science (physical science, chemistry, and physics). I graduated from MIT with a bachelor's degree in civil engineering - so along the way I took many math and science courses and now have a great deal of familiarity with the concepts and skills of math and science. Students (and parents) frequently report a great improvement in understanding, proficiency, and enjoyment of math and science after working with me.

Algebra 1

I have 3 years experience teaching algebra 1 in a classroom setting. I have also tutored many students in pre-algebra, algebra 1, algebra 2, and SAT prep (which involves a good deal of algebra) since this past winter. Finally, I reviewed and retaught many algebra skills with my geometry students during the 5 years that I taught geometry.

####
Algebra 2

I have tutored algebra 2 and precalculus (which uses much of the same knowledge and skills) this past year. I have also taught algebra 1, the prerequisite for algebra 2, for three years. Having attended MIT and majoring in civil engineering, I have a strong math background and many math skills.

####
Chemistry

I taught high school chemistry for 1 year, which included Regular and Honors Chemistry and a Chemistry 2 course for seniors. In college I took several advanced chemistry courses including chemical thermodynamics, organic chemistry, and biochemistry. I also have recently tutored in chemistry.

####
Geometry

I have five years experience teaching high school geometry. I have also tutored in geometry and in SAT prep (which involves quite a bit of geometry). I have also recently taken a college level geometry class (for my teaching certification).

####
Prealgebra

Many skills needed in pre-algebra are then used in algebra and geometry. I have 3 years experience teaching algebra 1 and 5 years experience teaching geometry. I also have tutored in pre-algebra and many later math subjects (algebra 1, geometry, algebra 2, advanced math).

####
SAT Math

I have 5 years experience teaching algebra and geometry - 2 of the main subject areas on the SAT math test. Also, I have good problem solving skills that I can teach to you and I can classify the different test questions into categories so that you can focus on the areas where you need the most help. Finally, I have already tutored several students in math SAT prep this year and so am very familiar with the questions.

####
ACT Math

I have taught algebra 1 for three years and geometry for five years - two of the main subjects on the ACT test. I have also tutored algebra 2, pre-calculus, and SAT prep since the spring. I have just started tutoring in ACT math prep as well so have some experience there and finally have good test taking and problem solving skills that I share with my students.

####
SOL

I have three years experience preparing students for the Algebra 1 SOL and five years experience preparing students for the Geometry SOL and I have the same number of years experience teaching those subjects. I have also tutored in algebra 1 and geometry. Finally, I have prepared students for the SAT, which is another standardized test that requires algebra and geometry knowledge.
